2012 Atomic Access Ski Review

The 2012 Atomic Access All Mountain Skis are one of the best deals you will find on the market. If you are looking to get your first 100mm waisted ski but don’t have a lot of money to spend the Atomic Access Skis are a great choice. Built for lighter weight skiers the Atomic Access Skis will ski everything from powder/crud to groomers. If you are over 190lbs but not aggressive then these would also be a lot of fun. If you are aggressive then you will want to consider something like that of the Line Prophet 100 or the all new Line Prophet 98 Skis which are going to be more versatile for a heavier/more aggressive skier. For under $500 though it is hard to find many faults with the Atomic Access Skis. They are not designed for super high speed runs but do well at medium speed in all terrain.

  1. Thanks. Very helpful direct comparison between the Access and the Prophet. More than just “dude”, “rage”, “pow”, “awesome” like so many reviews.

  2. Good review on the Access. I’m looking to step up from my Dynastar Big Troubles to one of the newer models. The Access looks interesting, but Atomic’s new Theory has also caught my eye. Just wondering how the two skis would compare side-by-side. The Theory is 95mm in the waist, which would make it more of an all-mountain ski than the Access. I’m skiing at an intermediate level and enjoy mostly blue runs (think Seventh Heaven at Whistler/Blackcomb). I venture off the groomed and into the trees looking for whatever I can find, patches of fresh powder, moderate jumps, whatever looks fun but not too technical or challenging for my skill level. I like to ski right up to closing day of ski season so I need something that is beefy enough to bash through the slush but is still forgiving. Any comments welcome.
